Tell it to your teacher

Ever want to tell your teacher what you really think? The Wo Learning Champions on campus has a new project that allows you to do just that.

Starting this week, students will have the opportunity leave anonymous and honest feedback for their teachers on a website. They can share their likes, dislikes, needs, wants, concerns or suggestions. The information they share will help the college and the system to identify areas of need so that they can be addressed.

The link for students to share their comments online is https://goo.gl/forms/VfI6yx2iPuQdoqMC3

The group will also be setting up big free speech boards and a free speech box at locations around the campus.

Campus has a 9-11 memorial site


Honolulu Community College hosts a memorial to victims of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
Twin five-foot-tall steel towers support a plexiglass American flag. Attached to the back of the memorial, in a sealed vessel, are a golf-ball-sized piece of World Trade Center rubble and a charred hunk of the Pentagon’s roof. The golf-ball-sized piece came from the rubble of the World Trade Center. It was donated to the college by a New York resident who wished to remain anonymous.
Designed by a sheet-metal instructor on campus, Danny Aiu, the entire memorial was built with donated funds and materials and volunteer labor. It is made of gleaming polished steel and plexiglass and was placed beside a 3-ton piece of the Berlin Wall.on
The memorial is in remembrance to those who were killed, including Christine Snyder, who had attended classes at HonCC. She was killed when United Airlines Flight 93 crashed in Pennsylvania.
